The Monthly Barometer is an analytical and predictive monthly newsletter that distills into one page those macro issues relevant to time-starved decision-makers.
It has been in existence since 2007 and, to date, its track-record is impressive. It is written by a small research team and benefits from the regular input of several hundred key opinion-leaders. A great deal of intellectual and methodological rigour lies behind its compilation. However, its style remains straightforward to read and easy to digest.

The Monthly Barometer is endorsed by some of the world's best thinkers. To see why, please request a copy of the latest Monthly Barometer by contacting us:


We live in an era of mounting complexity and information overload, in which it is increasingly difficult to distinguish the signals from the noise. In such a context, trying to identify the most relevant analysis tends to resemble “drinking water from a fire hydrant”.
Our strength is to focus on reducing complexity by conveying a simple (but not simplistic) and succinct message.

In less than two minutes each month, readers are able to:

  1. grasp the complexity of the world;
  2. better connect the dots; and
  3. get a sense of where the world is heading.


Our subscribers include private investors, business executives, and leading opinion-makers, all of whose time is severely constrained.


In the coming weeks, “must-watch” issues include: (1) the impact of the Fed’s forthcoming hike on the $ and its wide-ranging collateral effects (negative: on EM – “America first” puts them last, US multinationals, etc. and positive: for the EZ Japan and so on)  (2) China’s excessive indebtedness; (3) the rise in global yields and whether the current signs that global deflationary pressures are abating will be sustained (will Trump bring the deflationary cycle to an end?); (4) the vast array of market-moving geopolitical and political risks, with a focus on Trump’s agenda and the EZ: Italy’s constitutional referendum on Dec 4, and elections in Austria (Dec.4), the Netherlands (March), France (May) and Germany (Sept,). For real-time / in-depth analysis on any of these, please contact us.
